Came in with my party of four with reservations made through open-table. I have never had an issue before with a lost reservation which is why I love using this website. The restaurant claimed they had no idea about my reservation and came up with every excuse from the book as to why they didn't know about us coming. None of the excuses actually had them take ownership of the situation that they had messed up. This aside, the restaurant was extremely loud, the service was attentive but took a very long time even for simple drink orders, and the overall ambiance just seemed odd. This is a very small bar that serves food and is not recommended for groups larger than two people.

It use to be a house but now it's a Nice restaurant. Nice bar and drunk selection, however menu is little to small, needs more selections

Went there to try out the drinks, we were really impressed with this place. Great and nice service and the bar area and ambience is really cool. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a bit of an upscale bar.

We made a reservation through Open Table which they knew nothing about. In fact, we stood around for 10 minutes before anyone greeted us. When we told them we had a dinner reservation, they looked shocked. It then took another 10 minutes to find us a table (although the place was half empty). Cocktails were inventive but inconsistent (I ordered a second which tasted nothing like the first). Menu is very limited, but creative.
Food tasted great but overshadowed by the poor service.
